Israel tests missile defense system

Israel has the ability to defend itself against ballistic missiles launched against it from anywhere in the world, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday, announcing the successful test of the Arrow 3 anti-missile defense system in Alaska.

The test succeeded beyond all imagination, Mr. Netanyahu said.

The Arrow 3 is an advanced system designed for intercepting long-range missiles in space at an altitude that would safely destroy any nuclear warheads.
